What scares me…

Is this website. Not the avian Flu outbreak or the epidemic, atlough it's scary in its own right. No, what scares me is the website. what it represents.

This is a government website over the Birdflu cases in Egypt. It's up to date, it's easy to use, and informative. It has information and plans to counter the problem. Up-to-date death count. It's professional.

And it's coming from this government.

See, I like my world in black and white. Either we are inept, or we are not. I decided, for my own piece of mind, that we are inept. This proves me wrong. Someone with a brain designed this and continues to work on it. This could mean that we have a government that just acts inept for the sake of it, but knows better and can do better when it wants to. They are just intentionally being inept for the hell of it.

Or this could just be a fluke.

Yeah, a fluke. That's possible, right?

It better be a fluke! 


A twist in Abdel Karim's trial

The AbdelKarim's trial is becoming surreal.

Guess what the head Judge of the Alexandria court of appeals- the court Abdel Karim's case will go to if he gets a guilty verdict- does on his spare time?

He blogs.

The discovery was made by Gharbeia (link in arabic) and it gets better. The dude wrote a book on the legal bases and defintions of blogging. A freakin book! This is the Boss of any Judge that will take Abdel Karim's case in court. One wonders how will that affect the verdict exactly!

This is becoming so interesting!  

How to win popularity in the Muslim world?

You get a picture taken of you while napping in a Mosque!


Piousness, defined! (Hattip Kamangir

Of course, you might look like a hobo, and some smart people might ask why you would need to sleep there when you are the freakin President, but who said Propaganda was for the smart amongst us? 

Something fishy here

You know, this was supposed to be a post making fun of the Burqini ( A Burqa-Bikini, don't ask) until I read this:

Mecca Laalaa is the lone exception. Instead of a barely there bikini,
she's in a burqini – a top-to-toe two-piece lycra suit complete with
hijab, or Islamic head covering.


Ms. Laalaa is one of 24 young people of Arab descent who signed up for a 10-week surf lifesaving-training course.

Mecca Laalaa? Mecca..Laalaa? What?

Ok, maybe I am just rusty, but dear arab readers, does that sound like an arab name to you? Cause it seems made up to me. I have never met a girl called Mecca or seen the last name Laalaa anywhere. It almost sounds like a parody of what an arab name should sound like.
